I read your entire trip report. Do you have any more of these? I  
really enjoyed your pictures and write-up.

Washington is so beautiful. It is so different from what I am used  
to. The beauty continues to haunt me. It seems amazing to me that I  
was ever there. Like a dream. Nowadays I just thrash around in dry  
foxtails and get scratched up by mean plants on trails that are  
rarely maintained. Look at this crazy trip on the non-existent  
"Condor Trail." This is my stomping ground. I hiked some of this on  
my way to the PCT last year.
